Writing Exercise to Stimulate Creativity

Write a love letter to your favorite food. I found this in a book to help with writers' block. Here goes:

Dear Double Chocolate Cupcake:

I know you saw me notice you in the window, pressed against the glass along Murray with my mouth watering at the sight of your curves. You wore that chocolate ganache topping like a second skin as you flirted on your pedestal. It worked. I'm interested.

Nearly two weeks ago now I entered your shop and took you home with me, only to be continuously reacquainted with all your cousins in buttercream. I love how you crumble in my fingers and melt on my tongue, sliding around my mouth and filling me with joy.

When can I see you again? I know you might be a little upset with me since I took home your neighbor Key Lime on Friday. He meant nothing to me, I swear. A fleeting moment of barely-fun chewing and all I could think about was that he wasn't you, Double Chocolate. He wasn't you at all.

Or are you irritated about the vanilla incident? Trust me. Vanilla-vanilla isn't even in your league. That little sucker isn't even very moist! It's you, double chocolate, who fills my heart with passion. Your white little wrapper, the very heft of you in my hand while I wait for the bus. All of it. You are my true love and I miss you.

Hopefully you will be waiting for me this week when I stop by to pick you up. I know we have something special. I'll be there, wearing a green hat and a black pea coat. You don't have to tell me. I know you'll be wearing chocolate shavings and a puff of delicious frosting. We are meant for each other. I'll see you on Wednesday.
